School of Distinction AwardMobile County Schools

Principal, Mrs. Faith-Belle Lucy

Superintendent, Mr. Chresal Threadgill

Every morning, as the principal ended the morning announcements at Gilliard Elementary, she said the following phrase: “Will you be a bucket filler or a bucket dipper? Remember, make it a great day or not; the choice is yours.” This was a daily reminder for the students to focus on making each day a great day for someone else through the Bucket Filler program. This school-wide initiative, which focused on character development and building a positive school culture, involved all members of the Gilliard school community. Students were taught that everyone has an invisible bucket that is filled with kind words, service, and positive attitudes, or dipped from with negative attitudes and unkindness. As the school transitioned to remote learning due to Covid-19, the Bucket Filler program remained in effect as teachers and students found new ways to be bucket fillers. Students who acted as bucket fillers were recognized through daily announcements and social media shout-outs. Being recognized as a bucket filler was not contingent on academic ability, previous behavior, or prior recognition. The objective of the Bucket Filler program was to witness a decrease in office referrals and suspensions and an increase in school morale, both of which were met and exceeded!
